Sonia King from Birmingham (UK) began singing with her local youth choir at NTCG Handsworth and girl group "Gospel Sisters" in the early 80s, then sessioned at Big Feet Studio in Walsall owned by Kevin Edwards and Andy James, when she was asked to record and tour with a popular group from Jamaica called “Channels of Praise“ in 1985.
Shortly after that she became one of the lead vocalists for the Handsworth Mass Choir, who received the BBC Gospel Choir of the Year award in 1987, this led to various appearances for television, radio and Greenbelt.
Following this Sonia worked with gifted singer-songwriter and musician Paul Poulton on three of his albums, as well as touring with him. Her contribution to Paul’s “Body and Soul” album was highlighted by Dave Roberts in the Alpha Magazine as “..stratospheric backing vocals“.
Sonia has recorded with a number of other artistes including Rob Ash, Chris & Gary, Paul Grey, Enid Rose Weir, Simon Farrell, The Flame, John Wade, Dalton Kerr, Daddy Ray, Robert Harris, Mowglee and more! Her performance at the visit of Martin Luther King III to Birmingham in 1997 received much acclaim and was summarised as "remarkable".
Sonia's first CD EP "I Feel Good" was released in 1999 and latest offering “Kingship Praise” released in March 2020 with four tracks, blending an R&B cover of the popular worship song “You are my strength”, the sixties jived "Gifted to me" and two versions of a self-penned worship anthem with a heartfelt call for the return of Jesus, "Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus". These songs reflect a part of her journey and aim to uplift and encourage.
